Brad Pitt the new face of Chanel? Hm! I like it. Report from

According to E! News, the actor has signed a deal with the iconic label to be the face of the fragrance Chanel No. 5. Pitt was scheduled to film a commercial in London at some point this week, said E!, for a seven-figure paycheck. The spot won’t be released in the U.S., only abroad, circa late 2012.

Pitt’s rep did not immediately respond to THR’s request for comment.

Pitt, freshly engaged to Angelina Jolie, is expected to attend this month’s Cannes Film Festival with Jolie (who, according to THR sources, is assembling her wardrobe for the film festival.)

Pitt returns to the Croisette for the red-carpet rollout of his mobster drama Killing Them Softly, directed by Andrew Dominik, who worked with Pitt on The Assassination of Jesse James.
